While I hesitate to mention this, have any of you considered Latex? There is already an elementary converter for plain text (ascii), and a bit of formatting knowledge will get you nice looking PS, PDF, decent HTML, and wide support for a very large selection of printers.
In addition to this, all the software to do the basic work is free, and has been ported to *nix, MS Windows, and Mac. I recently hacked together some scripts, and while the output is not impressive, it is at least readable. I would be willing to email you some samples if you like.
